Ready for adventure? Take a closer look at our Dopp Kit. Extremely sturdy and perfectly sized for travel, our dopp kit is made from our favorite materials: twill wax canvas, leather, and brass. Read on for more details on the dopp kit and the history of this travel staple. 


Originally named after the leather craftsman Charles Doppelt, who was the first to create this perfect toiletries case, alongside his nephew. The Dopp Kit has been been a travelers side kick since 1919 when Doppelt began selling them in his store. Given to each of the US Army soldiers during the Second World War, the Dopp Kit quickly became a household necessity and favorite, often passed down or gifted to young men transitioning to adulthood.


The modern toiletries case must be able to carry the necessities, but with everything sized down for air travel. We've sized our dopp perfectly for those jet-setters and adventurers. Our dopp kit is made out of 18oz twill canvas, waxed and natural, with a #5 brass zipper, leather pull, and thick USA tanned leather handle, hand-stamped with our logo. The sturdy materials and careful construction will make this bag last through years of use, being tossed between suitcases, security lines, and sinks.
